Meaning of alugáyan



A bamboo-mat, square, either quite flat or, more frequently, with the edges turned up a little, used chiefly to catch the chaff when newly pounded rice is tossed in the "kalálaw" to separate the rice from the chaff. Kon táphan ang binayó isálud ang alugáyan. When you toss the rice free from the chaff, place the alugáyan underneath, (see lugáyan id.).
